Mirrrr always thinks the dude that beat his ass last is unstoppable. Tell us again how Brock is going to steam roll Reem.

Speaking of which... when R33M comes out of his slumber he's going to be looking to destroy whomever is holding his belt and no one in their right mind should stand with that dude. I don't care how sick JDS's boxing is. When Reem hits you it's over.

i think Mir is a pretty solid opinion on this subject. i think this fight is gonna be really close and it could come down to who performed better that night or who had the best gameplan.

as for reem, he does have power and he does have sick stand up, but he's an inside fighter and i think that could give him problems against JDS. JDS uses his reach really well and i could see him picking reem apart from the outside. dont get me wrong, that fight would be incredibly interesting because all it would take is for overeem to inside one time with one good punch and its lights out for anybody on this planet. i hope this fight happens.

Mir is a very intelligent, well spoken person but very biased as well. Right after he lost to Brock and Carwin he said Reem was going to get pulverized by any decent wrestler in the UFC.

I too think Reem has problems against quicker fighters that can stay on the outside and with JDS's great footwork Reem could have problems cutting the cage off but ultimately I think the fight would look like a kick boxer vs a conventional boxer and the leg kicks would add up. Also, it seems like even guys that are strong striker's with little wrestling try to take down Reem after they feel his power.

Brett Rodgers for instance, I know he is considered a joke now, but even Brett whose only strength is his one shot knock out power tried taking Reem down once he felt a good leg kick.

You couldn't even bring yourself to say that Cain will win.

Instead you are predicting that this "Csin" character will win.
